The Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL) is dedicated to the prevention of terrorism through education, empowerment, and engagement. As a nonprofit, non-partisan institution, its exhibit, speaker series, and training initiatives provide a comprehensive look at the threat of terrorism and how individuals can play a role in the prevention of terrorism, ultimately enhancing public safety.
This program has been adapted specifically for virtual learning. A CELL educator will take girls through a lesson and they will hear from Jesse Morton, former Al-Qaeda propagandist, and Christian Picciolini, a former white supremacist. Their remarkable stories will address:
- Violent extremist threat today
- Who is vulnerable to radicalization and why
- Ways to recognize and help prevent extremist recruitment tactics
Information on how to join the program online will be included in your confirmation email.
This program will be available to watch as a recording for one week after the program date. If interested in watching, please register and use the information provided in the confirmation email to watch the recording. The recording will not be available to those who do not register and will not be available past February 11.
